Exactly. You need to break it down like this:

Dubinsky will earn:
$3.75m (RFA year)
$3.75m (RFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)

$4.2m cap hit

So a comparable 4 year deal for Callahan would be:
$3.75m (RFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)

$4.425m cap hit

I'd try to get an additional UFA year from Callahan, making it:

$3.75m (RFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)
$4.65m (UFA year)

$4.47m cap hit
